About Us

Grantham Autistic Information Network (GAIN) is dedicated to supporting parents and carers of children and young people on the autistic spectrum.       It is a not-for-profit voluntary group based in the market town of Grantham, in the rural county of Lincolnshire, in the British Isles.        It is Tax Registered as a Charity with HMRC.

Our founder

Our founder member, Jane Emery recognised the absence of  one-to-one support for those struggling with (or without) a diagnosis of this condition.      She became our first GAIN chair, when she set up the support group in 2006.

Our events

Mainstream events are not always suitable for children with autism.       Click icon to find out why we put on events.

We held coffee mornings at Belton Lane children’s centre before Covid, and other events at Ambergate sports college a good few years ago.       We keep in touch with both of them.

See our events page for other venues.
